Not much has been seen of the new Warhammer 40K MMO since devs Behaviour Interactive announced the game last year. The latest Games Workshop approved Warhammer 40K title promises a true next gen experience aimed at PC, Xbox One and PS4 and is currently due to arrive sometime in 2015.
Eternal Crusade will bring a new MMORPG Player Versus Player action shooter into the Warhammer 40k universe. Set on the planet Arkona, you’ll be able to play from Orks, Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, and the Eldar each with their own familiar classes. Tyranids will also feature as NPCs becoming your enemies in procedurally generated Player Versus Environment dungeons and acting as a balancing force against all factions.
The game is set to follow a limited free to play model where players can either purchase the game to unlock all available factions or play for free as Ork Boys paying to unlock other factions separately.
This week Behaviour announced that Alienware will be lending their hardware umph to the project and the Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade community can now head over to the AlienwareArena page for exclusive promotions and giveaways.
Eternal Crusade will be shown at E3 by Square Enix, you can catch up with the reveal on Twitch which will be showing the game on Wednesday June 11th at 12.20pm Pacific time (8.20pm UK time). Behaviour will also be rolling out their Founders Program for early Eternal Crusade adopters to get on board.
